SUMMATION WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED–WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE

William Aley

U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories

GENERAL

  • Is the computer valid for planning? Yes!

  • The computer “empowers” us

  • First graphic display—now we want attached textual data for planning

TYPES OF PLANNING

  • Spatial planning:

    • 3D environmental planning

    • installation overlays

  • Facility and master planning

  • Environmental planning

TECHNOLOGIES/DEVELOPMENTS

  • Hypermedia

    • NAVFAC E1 system

  • Modular development

    • allows software release quicker

    • automatic user group

  • Resourcing and analysis

    • time and money

    • build or buy?

COMPUTERS AND USES

  • Preliminary DOS based requirement

  • Strong request for CADD, less for GIS (but GIS has highest predicted growth)

  • Must be user friendly

  • Networks needed to link existing databases

STANDARDS/DATA

  • Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC)—Multiple standardization efforts on-going

  • U.S. Army Waterways Experiment Station (WES) and Construction Engineering Research Laboratories (CERL)

    • CADD/GIS/Environmental

    • Database standards

  • Standards are real and will guide our data development efforts

  • Software independent development

USE YOUR RESOURCES

  • List of task group members

  • Contact today’s speakers

  • Use federal and Department of Defense labs

  • FCC task group survey

  • Use of contracting mechanisms (CAD2, etc.)

  • Penny Capps and the FGDC

  • Clearinghouse for Data.
